Steve Austin Signed up for More Action

Deadline is reporting that Anchor Bay Films is ready to keep rumbling with pro wrestler-turned-action star Steve Austin. The distributor has pacted in Berlin with Austin’s Broken Skull Ranch Productions and Bleiberg Entertainment, inking English-speaking territory rights to a pair of upcoming actioners starring the Expendables actor. First up is the evocatively-named Kill Em All, John, starring Austin as an ex-hitman pulled back into the underworld to “retire” a number of crime bosses as the clock ticks. Filming is set to begin this summer. Stunt veteran turned action director Jesse V. Johnson (who directed Austin and Dolph Lundgren in this month’s The Package) will direct from a script by Umair Aleem with Adam Marshall executive producing.

More Steve Austin action? Hell yes! He’s keeping old school action alive and we’ll always support him… unless he punches a baby or something, but I doubt that’ll happen.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
